MONACO (MON): The 800 m World record holder David Rudisha confirmed he plans to run at 2020 Olympic Games. “There’s still a lot to do.
Usain Bolt has won consecutive triple gold at three consecutive Olympics.
At 800 metres, nobody has won three consecutive Olympic titles. So that is a great motivation. I’m looking forward to 2020. I have a great feeling that if I stay injury-0free, have good health and strong training I feel I’m still strong and good to go.”
Olympic 10,000m gold medalist and World record holder Almaz Ayana wants to improve her performance in all events.
“This year I broke the (10,000m) record, and next year I want to improve my performance in all events. And hopefully to run again for my country. The 3000 is too short for me. In the 5000 I want to try and break the world record. For me now the 10,000 is my favourite event.”
World indoor and outdoor record holder Genzebe Dibaba plans to double at London Worlds.
“It’s going to be a year that I just want to improve my performances and just do something good again.
The 1500 is still my distance. But if I can I’ll try to double (at the 2017 world championships). But that decision will come later.”
